Why kids need STEAM?

Aug 2 / Bhavani
STEAM connects with children and furnishes them with basic reasoning, critical thinking, imaginative, problem solving as well as creative and collaborative skills. Innovations results in new products, not only in science but also in other fields. For Innovation to grow and furnish in a young child's mind, we need to give a solid foundation in Science and Technology areas.
Expansion of STEAM - Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Mathematics
  • Helps kids develop passion in science and technology
  • Based on Real-life situations, so they can understand better
  • Provides hands on experiences
  • Improves Concentration skills
  • Provides a basis for future learning
  • Sparks Innovative ideas for worldly problems
  • Improvises their social and communication skills
Through Investigative and explorative, as well as fun-filled and playful activities, STEAM plants a curiosity in each of the kid's brain. Naturally, Children at a very young age will be inquisitive and would like to know why things are happening around them in the world, the way they are. This is where STEAM helps, along with school education in providing a right base for the curious minds to understand Science and Technology, in a way they understand and apply them in real-world situations.

  • Science - For Research and critical thinking
  • Technology - For Problem-solving and Socialisation
  • Engineering - For Building new products
  • Art - For visualisation and Creative Thinking
  • Mathematics - For Logical understanding and Analytical thinking
These are the most needed skills of today's world. These are the foundation for life long future learning. Having the relevant skills will lead one to achieve their utmost goals and dreams in their life. STEAM is basically a necessary activity for the kids' overall growth and development.
These STEAM activities help in developing confidence in children as they understand well and express themselves in a more clear and appropriate manner. STEAM opens up a world of opportunities for the kids as they tend to experiment what they think and apply that knowledge to further understand their minds, which results in more and more of innovative ideas, which the world has never seen before. Out of the box, thinking will become a norm for them. Knowledge - Learning and understanding will become their life long partnership, which they will enjoy and have a good grasp on every subject.
Their Social skills improve a lot and they will become compassionate towards other people. They will love team works and try to help and encourage each other when doing activities in groups of kids. Their awareness level increases to a great extent.

STEAM education expands the benefits of hands-on education and collaboration in a variety of ways, promoting creativity and curiosity at the core, giving our youth more opportunities to be successful in real-world, professional settings and problem-solving situations.
The idea is to teach kids that they don’t have to be only analytical or only creative -- they can be both. To be successful both now and in the future, one must have both analytical and creative thinking skills.
STEAM shows children that they can use both the skills to solve almost any problem they face.
With this understanding let move on to why STEAM education is important.
I personally believe STEAM is a not class that we teach, but it is a culture that we build.
I think we should to make education more hands-on and relevant. STEAM education due to its interdisciplinary nature through emphasis on the connection between and amongst the STEAM disciplines, plays a key role in making education more relevant.
STEAM moves beyond simple test performance and focuses on developing higher-level thinking skills by connecting classroom learning to the real world
With emphasis on collaboration, communication, research, problem solving, critical thinking and creativity skills that students need to be successful in today's world.
Regardless of specific interests or career goals STEAM is a direct response to the realization that our future will be built on our capacity for innovation invention and creative problem-solving
